"This life is not so much a time for getting and accumulating as it is a time for giving and becoming. Mortality is the battlefield upon which justice and mercy meet. But they need not meet as adversaries, for they are reconciled in the Atonement of Jesus Christ for all who wisely use Today."

--Lance B. Wickman, "Today", Ensign, May 2008, 103–5

Dear Bev....I am HUMBLY asking for prayers for my 2 sons....they so need God's mercy and grace. I know you are a Godly woman.

My youngest son, Chad Schara, is 33and an alcoholic. It is to the point he is not even a functioning alcoholic anymore. Last night he went out, got very drunk, had just gotten paid and the 2 friends he was with "stole" his wallet with his cash from his just cashed paycheck and his cell phone. He somehow made it home...but his roomate/girlfriend must of locked him out and he had to sleep outside (in Colorado even the summer nights are chilly) and then from someplace he fell down a flight of stairs and scratched himself up and his ankle is either broken or badly sprained. I was told you cannot even see the ankle. I got the call this morning from his roomate...she is a sweet girl and loves him but not his drinking and has told him he has to leave tonight for good. It looks like he will be in a shelter. I am hoping that he will still be there when she gets home from work tonight...so they can talk and so I can speak to him! I asked her if he was still there...would she let him use her phone to call me and she said yes. I also asked her to take him to the ER to check his ankle if not better.

My oldest son, David Schara, is 36 and also likes beer and bars...but not to the extent his brother does. He is divorced and pays just about $1000.00 a month in alimony. Some of you met him...as he lived with us and attended church with us this past November. He is working...but has to get 40 hours a week of work in order to pay his rent and his child support, car payment and food. I am asking for prayers for him to also quit what beers he does drink and for him and his co-workers to get 40 hours a week so they can all meet their financial needs. I am also asking that he and his kids bond.....the ex wife..tends to be angry and tends to bad mouth my son and then the kids also tend to hold anger. Someone has to make the first move and forgive......I pray and pray....please pray for them all!

My husband Mike and I have helped my 2 sons financially as we can and have them lifted in prayer and prayer and prayer. It has come to the point that we may need to move back to Colorado come 1 October or 1 November..in order to be physically there and let them live with us. This will cause some problems between my husband and myself..as my husband is wonderful...but feels these 2 men are MEN and need to grow up and then you have me...the mom and I think and love as a mom!

I trust your prayers to our God! But we need help! I ask for prayers that Chads roomate let him stay with her....until we can move back there, my husband to find a job and us get our own apartment and then the 2 sons to live with us. I ask for prayers for my husband to understand, I ask for prayers for forgiveness on my ex daughter in laws heart, I ask for prayers for both sons to be released from the bondage of alcohol, I ask for prayers that my sons cell phone and wallet be given back to him from the people who took it. I ask for my oldest son to be able to get 40 hours a week of work.

Dear Friends...I just ask for help....I trust God and know he will hear your prayers on our behalf! I ask for prayers that I be healthy and well and whole...as Satan is attacking our family from every angle....spiritual, emotional, physical and financial! I suffer from asthma, bronchial asthma and respiratory problems.

I apologize if I have bothered you all by this request....but it comes from the depth of my heart! Thank you...cindy adams

You have my prayers for you and your whole family hon.
Satan is attacking the FAMILY unit as a whole worldwide. If he can destroy families, he knows he can destroy society and so many lives.

We cannot let that happen. Prayer is a great blessing. We have a loving Father in Heaven who wants us to succeed. We CAN do it!

I'm sorry you are having to deal with all these deep problems. My mom-heart totally understands.

Just my opinion is that it would be a mistake to move back to CO so those grown up men can move back in with you and remain irresponsible.
They need to want help so they don't drink anymore, AT ALL! Alcohol destroys. It doesn't do any good, and never will, it destroys.

May you all find peace and happiness in this life.
